  1. THIS!!! I came to post it if nobody else had. I've shown my 25 year old daughter (first jab received) and said that if this doesn't persuade her, nothing will. I give up, truly.
  2. Not new news, but 'Project Speed', new mega-prisons ready for the likes of we 'refuseniks', no doubt. https://corporatewatch.org/prisonbuilders/
  3. Oh, this all looks so predictable. All the 'problems' and 'mistakes' being made with the vaccines, just so we can spend the rest of this year in lockdown while we wait for the microneedle array patch that Amazon can ship out to all of us to be stuck on at home.
  4. Cool. Just saying what came up when I was trying to think of a name and reading your thoughts. Still can't think of one.
  5. Anybody who tells you they know what God is can only be believing what someone else has told them or they've had an experience where they '*feel* that they've connected with something Other that feels much bigger than they are; a different level of Being. For me, it was reading Wei Wu Wei (Terrence Gray) that tripped a switch that put me into a state of what they call non dual awareness for two days and nights. As you can see from my posts it didn't stay. However, having had that experience I now believe in the oneness of everything, that they call the Self. There are loads of great speakers/teachers on YouTube. I like Paul Hedderman a lot, Jac O'Keeffe, Fred Davis. People like Alan Watts' lectures. I tried to get it back by reading their words, I've got loads of books, or listening to them speak, because it was utter bliss, but It happens when it happens. Listening to people describe the non separation between Subject and Object can push you there. I'd love to stay in that state. Just believing in the Oneness of everything does help when I really start losing the plot.
  6. Meh, science is only the latest theory. Gravity, the sun, the big bang, they're probably wrong about all that. And what does 'the Left' mean? Quite possibly a different thing to me than to you. If I think of these bastards as 'the Left', it's not matching my definition. It suggests 'the Right' is better. Maybe I'm being pedantic, and I can't think of a better name right now. Don't like the emotional ones. Emotion clouds common sense. I really like the 'freedom' bit though.
  7. Hi Emacle and welcome. I lost my mind in 2008 and it's happening to me again too. The healing I did is keeping me just about ticking over but it's touch and go. I hope you find some peace in company here. I dip in occasionally until it gets too much to keep reading. Some very good souls here.
  8. What on earth? Trump and Johnson are both in their roles because they were willing to play this game. Biden and Starmer are no better. All completely revolting.
  9. Lower levels of education? FFS.
  10. I know. Now I've posted I've been thinking about how nothing at all in the world could change my mind about all of this. I'd stake my life on it and will possibly have to. But if I can admit cognitive bias then maybe I'm just wishing 'the other side' ;) could too. I can't find Fluke's post now, but he said it better than I can. I was probably reading around the forum and reading folks total conviction about 'their' religion and it struck home. Also, the posts yesterday about trying to persuade others of our opinion . It doesn't usually work. They're going to read their usual sources. I'll get me coat.
  11. I don't know how to find it without a huge headache but 'Fluke' said something yesterday I wanted to go back to as I didn't put a like on it at the time. It was about us looking at our beliefs and realising they *are* beliefs, and as such probably/definitely have some cognitive bias. It's one of the most important things in a person's growth to realise this, I believe. For many reasons, mostly because of our upbringing, we are biassed, it's inevitable. The best thing we can do is check our sources and references but unless we're experts we're all choosing the experts that match our bias. For example, two people I've told in real life that I don't believe any of this crap have said, so you're right wing? Hello? Nope. Brought up old Labour, definitely never right wing. I don't care who you'd vote for, I still have my beliefs about the so called virus and it's nothing to do with my politics. Why are people joining camps according to their political views? My gut tells me I'm right, but it's not political and I realise I MIGHT BE WRONG. I just don't believe so. Had to get that off my chest. Really liked Fluke's post.
  12. I admit I'm a pessimist by nature but I believe it will be mandatory. In the sense that you'll be a pariah or excluded from pretty much everything. I'd love to be proven wrong. UBI is coming, and the conditions will be attached.
  13. I like Byron Katie's take on this. I have to use it because my daughter is giving my grandson the flu vaccination and other stuff that I didn't do to her. It gets so frustrating to believe in my mind that she's harming him, although she'd never want to do that deliberately. But Katie says, and substitute Nature or Fate or Higher Power for God if it's not your thing: "If you’re not sure, stop and ask, “Mentally, whose business am I in?” There are only three kinds of business in the universe: mine, yours, and God’s."
  14. Probably because of the terrible hash I made of the English language in my first post. I get very anxious when I post anything and i edit it so much that it no longer makes much sense.
  15. I'm from Essex, innit? ;)
